"Garún is named for the strong and brave heroine of one of Iceland’s most popular folktales "The deacon of Dark River (Myrká)." A tale of ghosts, undying love, and life triumphing over death told against the backdrop of elements essential to Iceland’s character: ice, snow, and flooding waters whirling dark and mysterious. The same elements that inspire this rich, intense, bold and swirlingly varied Icelandic stout. Garún is a dark aura of intense richness and haunting aroma with notes of chocolate, licorice and coffee. Skál!"

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle from Steamworks Liquor Shop, Vancouver
Black color with generous brownish, fizzy head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, light impression of quality coffee. Rather attenuated, the mouthfeel is drier than the average Imperial Stout, but also the alcohol is very noticeable; the malt flavor is very nice, with good accent of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, some salty liquorice, and light lactose.
Very nice.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Keg at CBC Brixton - London. First off, it’s a very confusing pump clip. Pours oily black-brown with a creamy beige head. Charred malts in the nose, dark chocolate, burnt sugars, earth. Heavy sweet flavor with burnt cereal, bittersweet chocolate, charred meat, earth, coffee grounds, sugar syrup. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with sticky burnt sugars, more chocolate, roast, scorched earth, raisins, plums, toffee, figs. Somewhat interesting, but just far too sweet.
